Series 602.4P - Course Credit by Assessment: Application for Testing Out of a Course
Adopted: February 1999
Revised: May 2005
When a student applies for high school course credit through the assessment process, it is assumed the student believes that he or she is ready to demonstrate the learner outcomes of the course can be met in place of the traditional teaching/learning process.
The student will discuss the request for testing out with the school counselor and then complete this application. The application must be received before the beginning of the trimester (or quarter) preceding the regular class. (The summer period is treated as one trimester or quarter.) All portions of the assessment must be completed within a two-trimester (or two-quarter) period and at least six weeks before the regular class.
